The Redlands area is a highly desirable part of south-east Queensland, located approximately halfway between Brisbane and the Gold Coast, at the southern end of Moreton Bay.
Initially established as an agricultural hub thanks to the rich red soil, the area is booming with new developments springing up throughout the region, particularly in Redland Bay, Thornlands and Cleveland.
Understanding the Redlands Real Estate Market
Demand is high and the steady rate of growth strengthens the area’s market appeal. Although geographically not far from Brisbane, it’s important for both buyers and vendors to realise that the Redlands real estate market is very different to the city.
Since the pandemic hit, houses are selling quickly, making it a seller’s market. REIQ data shows multiple suburbs in the Redlands Coast appearing in the top 20 suburbs for new resident arrivals in Queensland.
It’s easy to understand the Redlands’ appeal. Buyers are spoiled for choice with a wide selection of properties from townhouses and units, to single family homes. Dual living, waterfront,
and acreage properties
in particular, are always highly sought after.
Close to All Amenities
The major shopping and commercial hubs are located in Capalaba
and Victoria Point, and both have a dedicated bus interchange so locals can travel easily to the city, Gold Coast, and southern suburbs. The Cleveland railway line is a popular option for commuters, with stations in Thorneside, Birkdale, Wellington Point, Ormiston
and of course, Cleveland.
The region boasts both public and private hospitals and is well serviced by medical professionals and community organisations; and there is a TAFE campus located in Alexandra Hills.
With a focus on open space, there are many parks and bushland areas to explore. The leafy surrounds are home to many wildlife species including koalas, kangaroos, birds, and lizards.
The Indigiscapes environmental education centre at Capalaba offers the opportunity for all ages to enjoy and learn about native habitat, sustainability and caring for native flora and fauna.
And of course wherever you are in Redlands, you're never far from the fresh ocean breezes!
